Photo of the Day: Sunday Morning in Quito

By Sarah

The eastern slopes of Pichincha, an active stratovolcano in the Andes mountains, stretched outside my window at the Amazonas Rios Hotel, a stunning show of nature in a city that had been bustling with dancers and street vendors the night before.  On Sunday mornings the streets in the city center close down to cars and runners, walkers and bikers have free reign.  Quitoians are mildly active — I passed a couple dozen people during my  half hour walk.  I did go at 7:30am, a time when the streets of New York are at their quietest.  



About sistersbailey

We are Perrin and Sarah Bailey, collectively known as “The Sisters Bailey”. The moniker was born out of a crazy weekend at the 2009 New Orleans Jazz Fest and it was the first time we had ever been referred to as one unit. We grew up in Alexandria, VA together and then separated for college - Perrin to The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah to Northwestern University – and somehow landed together in New York after graduation. It was in the midst of the hustle of Manhattan that we became friends for the first time in years. Somehow we landed jobs in the same industry - Sarah worked in marketing at HBO and Perrin managed creative digital promotions for her media agency’s main client, Disney - just three blocks from one another. One day we decided to leave our jobs, sell our belongings and travel abroad with a backpack and a collective savings of $10K. The stories of our continuing adventures and those of other fearless travelers are here to inspire you.
